Hotel del Coronado with Kids | San Diego Hotel Childcare

Looking for a place to stay over the holidays where you can totally immerse yourself in the seasonal experience?  Look no further than the beautiful and historic Hotel del Coronado

They really get into the spirit of things over there for their guests. For Halloween, they offer a ghoulishly themed Kidtopia event for little ones ages 4-12. While in Kidtopia (the Del’s children’s year-round children’s program), your kids will be able to play on a fun climbing unit, participate in craft making, or play with the high tech entertainment station.

While the kids enjoy their Halloween-themed camp experience, the Del offers a grown up trick-or-treating party for the adults. If you are traveling with a teenager, they offer Vibz, a teen lounge for young adults ages 13-17.  Vibz is absolutely free for overnight guests and includes a wide array of teen-friendly activities such as darts, billiards, video games, and the opportunity to meet other visitors their own age.

If you are planning on visiting during the Thanksgiving or Christmas seasons, you will feel right at home with the cozy and warm atmosphere the Hotel del Coronado provides.  There is a flurry of seasonal delight to be enjoyed from November 24 – December 17.  A Thanksgiving meal complete with all the trimmings is scheduled for November 25, and the same is offered for Christmas Eve and Christmas. There is something for every member of the family.  

A beautiful seaside ice skating rink will be opened on the Windsor Lawn, and ice skating lessons will be offered. A portion of the skating proceeds go to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

The hotel’s theme this year is “The Sweetest Season,” and the resort will be decked out from head to toe in sugar plums, peppermint swirls, sugar lollipops and plenty of other Christmas goodies. The kids can enjoy holiday favorites like cookie decorating, or a sleigh ride through the beautifully decorated Coronado Island. The hotel boast 100,000 glimmering lights strewn over the facility.  There is “An American Christmas” play for the adults to attend while the younger family members visit the Teen Spa and Salon.

The salon offers clarifying facials, sun kissed tans, or a sampler of the services.  As an additional holiday treat, the Hotel Del Coronado offers an exclusive Elf Tuck-In.  A lively dressed elf will visit your child at bedtime to tuck them in all snug and warm! How delightful!

Even if holiday themes aren’t your thing, the Hotel del Coronado has year-round activities sure to please any family member. You can rent bikes to take your family on an adventurous 15-mile bike trail, you can rent paddleboats, jet skis, kayaks and more.  And, of course, Kidtopia is always ready to entertain your children with fun and excitement.  

Visit the website to see the full schedule of activities available in Kidtopia. The Hotel del Coronado looks to be a sure thing when it comes to having a fun vacation, a worry-free business trip, or just a place to make amazing memories.
